We showed up on time. The location was a little tricky, but I called the office at 7:15am and someone was there to help me locate the guide. My wife, 9 year old, 11 year old and I were introduced to Scotty. He was pleasant and professional. He was very clear about what we'd be doing, how to do it... More

We went out one morning last week with Scotty and had a fantastic time! My husband and 15 year old son and I have some experience kayaking on rivers so it was easy to get the hang of the ocean kayaks. There was another older couple on the tour who had never kayaked before and Scotty was very patient explaining... More

Lovely day kayaking (my friend and I had been before though we are still beginners), lots of turtles (they were everywhere) and everything at Kelii's was very organized. Maybe we got him on a bad day, but our guide, "Jeremiah/Miah" was gruff and rude. He complained a lot...about everything. and whether on purpose or not, kind of hurt my friend's... More

We had a great West Maui shore paddle with guide Brandon! Nice gentle paddle in a two person tandem with a small group of three kayaks made this 2.5 hour tour perfect for my husband and I. We are experienced kayakers, however, no experience necessary for this trip which I would recommend to anyone wants to get up close and... More

We had an amazing time kayaking, whale watching and snorkeling with sea turtles. Our guide Scotti was relaxed, easy going and explained everything very simply. We were able to paddle out and see a lot of whales. We even got to experience whales swimming directly underneath our kayaks, there calls under the water were so loud it vibrated our kayaks.... More

So amazing! Scotti got us started with a great attitude and easy presence on the beach. He made sure everything was ready to go and explained what to expect. We saw lots of whales, snorkeled with turtles and enjoyed a peaceful time. With lots of other kayak companies yelling and screaming on the water, our nice relaxing quiet adventure with... More

It was a small crew when we went out with Jeremiah (5 people in total). It was a good time. We some a few turtles, less than we anticipated, but we had a chance to see some whales up close. I did get a bit sea sick while we were watching the whales. So you may need to be prepared... More

Wasn't sure how this adventure would go as I've never kayaked before and my husband is blind. But Scottie, our tour guide was amazing, taking it all in stride and making it an unforgettable experience for both of us. Thank you for your patience and encouragement, Scottie!!

What a great trip! This was definitely one of the highly lights of our two weeks on Maui. I'd never been in a kayak before but he was great at explaining. Only complaint was that it was too short.
